Yeah there are a couple. Kyokushin allows for elbows below the neck (collarbone is allowed). You will see a lot of repetitive elbows thrown to break down someone's guard in a kyokushin fight. But elbows aren't really used for a knockdown in kyokushin cuz their bodies are so conditioned to those strikes.

Oh yeah I forgot to add there is also lethwei. It's a Myanmar martial arts that's very similar to Muay Thai, except they don't use gloves. And apparently, head butts are also allowed in lethwei fights.
